Top Gear's Jeremy Clarkson Picks the Corvette Stingray as his Car of the Year

Jeremy Clarkson, one of the co-hosts of the BBC’s Top Gear auto show, has turned in his choice for the 2014 Car of the Year and it’s none other than the 2014 Corvette Stingray. We’ve come along way from the days when America’s Sports Car was nothing but a punching bag (or a literal target) for the British auto critic. The choice for the 2014 Car of the Year was announced in the magazine version of Top Gear in their annual awards issue which is out now.

The C7 faced some pretty tough competition in Road & Track’s first Performance Car of the Year contest.

But as is becoming the custom, the seventh generation sports car from Chevrolet pulled away from the pack that included cars like the Ferrari F12, Competition Pack BMW M6, Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG Black Series, two Jaguar models, Nissan GT-R, and Ford Fiesta.

Chalk up another victory for the 2014 Corvette Stingray: the 2014 Yahoo Autos Car of the Year.

While other awards may involve the technical aspects of the latest and greatest from Chevy, Yahoo Autos admits that “you’ll have to look elsewhere for physics-class style analytics and G-force inducing skid pad tests.”
